2007 COPPER BOWL
at the Hilton El Conquistador
Tucson, Arizona - January 2-7, 2007
Tuesday, January 2, 2007-Day One
It's good to be back in Tucson and I always love staying at the Hilton El Conquistador. There's something very refreshing about the mountains and as an allergy-laden gal, I appreciate the lack of grass, trees and flowers!
I decided not to wander too far on day one and headed over the the El Conquistador Country Club for awhile where the Boys 12s were playing. I can't say enough times how powerful these kids are getting at younger and younger ages. What I saw today was no exception. It is also a bit more difficult to seed 12s since they haven't been playing as long (and in a Level 3 some of them have never played Nationals before) so it was quite a feat that all the seeds made it through the first and second rounds.
Until Tomorrow,P.S. It seems like everywhere I go in Tucson is a "Kodak Moment" so I hope you'll enjoy some non-tennis photos.
